My Hubber Score has been very stable in the mid 90's (94 to 96) for at least a year. In the last few days since I published a new hub it has been dropping, and it is now down to 90. Also in the week since I published my new hub, I've been more active on HP with respect to getting comments and giving comments. I'm getting new followers and following new hubbers at about the same rate as before.
My new hub had a hub score of 92 yesterday and my average hub score is at 83, just as it has been for the last 3 months after it bounced to 83 from the long standing 82. My new hub is getting views at about the same rate as other hubs do when they are new. I have not had a decrease in views--in the last few weeks my views have increase by about 40%. I'm even doing a little better on amazon sales.
All of my newest hubs have scores in the high 80's to the high 90's. Some of my older hubs have scores in the 70's and that is why my average score is not higher.
Has something changed about the algorithm for Hubber scores?
My hubber score always goes down after I post a new article. Within a few days or a week, it goes back up to what it was before I posted.
I hope so. It is down 5 points--usually if I see a drop it is only a point or two and, you are right, it goes back up. . I need it stay above the cut-off of 85.
I posted Saturday and my score went down two points. I just checked and it's back up to where it was before I posted.
Please I am a little bit new to Hub pages and my hub score is currently at 79 points and I have about 18 featured hubs, with an average score of 62. I have only 2 followers. But you talk about a cut-off of 85. Please can you explain what you mean by cut-off?
I answered another hubber on this identical question and they must have not believed me, so I urge you to not make that mistake too. Ask Marisa or sallybea.
What does the cut-off of 85 mean? Does that have to do with adsense?
Unless I am wrong, if a hubber score is below 85, your hubs don't get featured.
No, that's not true. Having a low HubScore or low HubberScore below 85 not affect you in any way, shape or form.
The ONLY thing that happens when your score drops below 85 is that links INSIDE your Hubs get marked "no follow". That doesn't affect your reader because they can still click on those links and get to the site or product you've linked to.
All it does is reduce the value of the link, and that won't matter unless you are linking to a website and you're trying to give that website a boost in the search engine results.
A few people have posted recently about dropping scores so it does look as though they might be tweaking it again.
No my hubs are all featured. I have 11 and most have been moved to niche sites. I'm just trying to figure out why adsense doesn't' approve me. I don't have more than one amazon capsule if any in my hubs and my hubs keep getting moved to niche sites but adsense still won't approve me. I'm going try again at 15 hubs and see what happens
Easy. Your oldest Hub is less than 3 weeks old. It has to be a month old.
Intuitive: I don't know too much about ad sense, but I think they like to wait six months or so because they only want to approve people who are going to stick with it. You might want to start a new question with ad sense in the title so you can get moire replies specific to this issue. Also try googling your question.
Intuitive: did you see my answer? There's no need to wait six months.
Adsense doesn't give clear guidelines on what the requirements are, which is annoying, but experience has shown they won't consider an application until your oldest Hub is at least one month old. That's why you haven't been successful yet, just wait a couple of weeks and try again.
You'll easily pass the quality requirement.
My score dropped from 87 to 84 (it's lowest ever) two days ago, but was immediately back u to 87 the next day.
Your score went down because you hadn't been posting. You have been inactive so they lower you score to get you to keep posting to keep your score up.
Yup, well here I go. I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment. Going to write another hub SO MY SCORE WILL, NO DOUBT, GO DOWN. How discouraging is that? I noticed once a person who had NO hubs was barely behind me. I think he was dead. No seriously. (Yet the other authors chose me as a Popular Accolade recipient.)
I try to cater to my audience who will judge it - Mostly religious women who want a "How To." (How to crochet a animal beanie won editor's choice once. REALLLY!?) Not human interest. BAH! I understand that people usually are searching the internet trying to get direction. I'm not signed up to make money. My double whammy is I'm writing about GUY THINGS. How would they know about a Father-son bond?
But the other REAL authors have been SO NICE TO ME. They jumped right in and helped me SO much! I love you all. They have allowed me to tag along like I am Lennie to their George from Steinbeck's novel. Thank you Hubbers and especially JONAH.

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...
